I can use a sewing machine with my hand wrapped and swollen! Got started on my Fabric Post Cards for January...very happy with them! I'll wait to post a photo later.
The nurse I visited today to get my bandages changed said my burn was "very pretty". I didn't think so but I guess she's seen a lot more 2nd degree burns than I have! This bandage I leave on until Thursday and change again for a shorter period. Would you like to see my burn when I put on new gauzes Thursday?
Sandi over at Embroideroo and I have a BUTTON thing....so these photos are for her! And, of course, anyone else who likes old buttons! I purchased a box full of buttons at an auction in 1998 while visiting my friends in the Buffalo area of New York. The price has escaped my memory bank but I know whatever it was I was very, very pleased with my purchase in the evening when I thoroughly explored the contents. Whoever had the buttons before me had organized them in bundles by size and color although many were loose or on cards. I can't bare to release them from the cards...just too cool. Do you see the Eygptian looking one? Many are mother of pearl, bone, tortoise shell and wood. And a lot are funky plastic, too.
There are some packets with button cover kits...I might use them. Recently saw an idea on....oh, agh...I can't find it now.
What buttons do you collect? Use? Display?
I'd like to hear your ideas! or have some links....I can't just leave them stored in a box forever...or can I? (my secret treasure!)
